    Was it a 370 or 429 Lima? Was it a Cat or Cummins or New Holland Diesel? What transmission? Allison AT545? Eaton/Fuller 10spd? How long is the bed?

    Let's see some pics!

    I'd say you got a good deal if it was a 429 or a diesel, however I wouldn't have given that much for a 370 powered truck, I'd give $6000 at most for one of those.

    The trucks with 370s are pretty under powered even the trucks with 429s are underpowered and burn tons of gas.

    The problem with the 370's is that they only came with a 2bbl Motorcraft carburetor--roughly 350cfm--not nearly enough. The 429's came with a 600cfm Holley 4bbl.--still not sufficient for a big gasser.

    You and Mr. Edelbrock can fix that though. :cool:

    A 429/460 intake and towing cam will fit the 370 from what I've heard (since the 370/429/460 are the same block anyway), throw a 4bbl. carb on it and it should wake up. I know of several guys who have put 4bbl's on their 370's along with intakes and towing/truck cams and they have gotten good results.
